Hedi Zuber and Her Friends
22 March 2016 until 10 July 2016
Opening: 21 March 2016, 6.30 p.m.
Hedi Zuber (1916–1996), a woman of small stature who suffered from rickets, is one of the great naive painters. In 2016 we will celebrate the 100th anniversary of the birth of the artist. The Museum im Lagerhaus is showing an exhibition of her extensive oeuvre featuring a new way to experience the works. For the first time, selected exhibits can be viewed with augmented reality. This will make it possible to see Hedi Zuber’s art and her Art Brut colleagues from St.Gallen Jakob Greuter, Hans Krüsi, and Erich Staub in a new light with a greater depth of information.
